The concept of the commons as a space of collectivity and community can create new ways of learning and sharing of experience. The commons can also emerge out of states of emergency when the governing infrastructure is no longer viable. What does it look like when the space of the commons flourishes at times of chaos and consequently subverts accelerated industry? How have architectural, design, and curatorial practices used the commons to establish new ways of co-learning and coworking in rapidly changing times?
